The 4th of the Mill Sessions this year took place on Wednesday, and this time featured accoustic guitar duo, "Farino".
As with previous sessions (see Sean Taylor, Beth Fouracre and Becc Sanderson & Graeme Stephen), I was given time to get some photos of them before the gig started.
Unlike previous sessions, however, the seasons have moved on, and it is now light in the early evenings. Additionally, with The Mill on the Fleet open again for the tourist season, the empty gallery space I used for the last 3 photo sessions is no longer available.
So I turned up early to try and find another possible area. After searching inside and out, I was directed to a closed off, derelict part of the complex, which had plenty of space and light.

There was also a great old weathered area of wall that added a wonderful texture in the background for close-up portraits
When we were heading back over to the main building, I realised we were in the "golden hour" where photography is concerned - when the sun is low in the sky, giving everything a golden hue.
Like last time with Becc Sanderson, I recorded one of their songs on my camera. It was a close run thing - the memory card would have run out if it had gone on for another 15 seconds.

I should also mention, the support act, warming up and getting everyone in the mood was talented local singer-songwriter Marcus S Wright, and I also managed to squeeze a quick photo session in with him too.

The room was packed, and the atmosphere and playing were superb. It was a great evening.
